Hi y'all,

I'm trying to record a screen cast by issuing the command:
@ vlc screen://

In return, the following error message is printed to screen:
VLC media player 0.8.6 Janus
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  141 (XVideo)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  19 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  89
  Current serial number in output stream:  90
pure virtual method called
terminate called without an active exception
Aborted (core dumped)

I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn). Nothing special was running in the background when the command was issued. Any idea what the problem is and, more importantly, how to overcome it?
